Works as expected with a positive surprise.
I've been using this to break down plywood. The saw works well. Very smooth start, smooth cuts, very good dust collection when connected to a shop vac. I initially clamped the track to the plywood, but discovered that this is not always necessary. The track is heavy enough, particularly with the saw resting on it, that the anti-slick strips on the back very effectively keep it in place.

Makita track saw...awesome!!!
The saw is excellent, well worth the money. The blade it comes with is great for ripping plywood but needs a more aggressive blade for ripping thick hardwood. I put on a 14T Freud and it cuts great, no burning, and very minimal splintering.

Also, make sure the blade is set to 90 before making cuts. From the factory, mine was not.

Clean, light, fast track saw -- will save you time!
I bought this mostly to speed up cutdown from sheet good to cabinet construction. This gets you a good reference edge without having to rough cut and finish it on the table saw. Better than a clamp on guide and regular circ saw; that can still jiggle. Scoring cut a major aid though for expensive veneer you still might want to tape the cutline.

I bought a second guide so that I can have the option of ripping full 8' sheets. Recommend getting the Makita track connectors as they come in a set of two (instead of having to buy two separate pieces for more money). Made my own clamps from some horizontal hold-down clamps I had in the shop; nice to have but if you're cutting on a solid surface really not needed.

Will this make a straight enough cut to join two boards together without the use of a jointer. I am looking for a great seam
Travis on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would say not recommended but possible in theory. I love this saw but use it primarily for sheet goods. The cut is incredibly clean and straight but there are other factors to consider with your application. First your boards need to be wide enough for the guide to sit properly. Secondly lumber is not only crowned but usually cupped as well which will affect the performance of the guide depending on the severity. Your boards would need to be fully dressed clean with a planer to have a chance at getting a good cut. I have a jointer and planer so the track saw is not my option to accomplish this task so I have never tried

Blade included?
Spencer on Dec 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This saw will include: (1) 6-1/2" 48T Carbide-Tipped Saw Blade (B-07353)
Will the Dewalt or Festool clamps work with the Makita rail?
Bob on Nov 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Dewalt clamps are compatible.
Once you have made a miter cut, does this affect the splinter guard when you go back and make a 90 degree cut? In other words will the splinter guard still make splinter free flush cuts or will the splinter guard be cut at an angle making it not sit flat against the wood?
Javier on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It does not affect the splinter guard after a cut.
